    Hi All,

    I have started the website for my company and I like the start that I have. I used to build websites in college but that was 8 years ago and my skills have eroded quite a bit. I have an "on mouse over" setup on my side navigation bar but it doesn't work quite right and I'm not able to figure out my bug. If you could take a look at it and my code and see if you can see what the trouble is, that would be fantastic!

    The site is still a work in progress but I made sure that the cgi mailer form works :) I don't want to miss out on an opportunity for someone to let me know that they found my site.

    I guess maybe my post was a bit too technical. If you are checking out my site a little review would be helpful as well. The only folks who have said anything are my friends and they don't want to hurt my feelings!

    I know that the sight is under construction but a few comments would be helpful.

    It doesn't look like you are perhaps using the correct mouseout function. Without having a mouseout function, the links will retain their displayed properties that you have selected for the onmouseover.

    I can probably try and figure it out for you, but perhaps this will give you a start to figuring out the problem.

    Not being mean here, the site just looks a bit basic to me. It looks like a 1998 website in 2006. Need maybe a nice header... It won't wow anyone.

    All the layout and content is there though. I think you should not bother fixing the mouse over nav buttons, and find something nicer for nav.

    JMO, don't hate me.:cool2:

    Try http://www.buttongenerator.com

    Free, and what's not will be soon. You get the code and button images in a zip file download. You can design on their site, including color changes and background.

    My home page top menu is that.

    I paid $20 to join www.flashbuttons.com for a few frills like the middle of my home page - or see my Advice page. All editable at their sites, with code supplied.

    The flash site is even easier to use, but I think the first site I mentioned has some classy looking freebies.

    Wow, I guess it does look a little out of date. When I was building sites in college we had to worry about people who didn't have the ability to view frames with their browsers.

    Thank you for the input!

    Well, I figured out how to fix the on-mouse-over function. Now I just need to fill the thing with content. Comments and suggestions are always welcome!!
